Volunteer firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians respond to emergency calls every night of the week in this suburban sprawl of the Nation’s Capital. Some members decide to live at the station, running calls for their rent. Others dedicate two nights a month to be on a Duty Crew.
Volunteers receive FREE training to become certified firefighters and/or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), are issued equipment with NO out-of-pocket expenses, and are eligible for many long-term rewards for their service.
